Kolkata, Sep 15 (IBNS): Keeping the Durga Puja in mind, ‘Mainland China‘, the largest chain of fine-dining Chinese restaurants in the country, had organised a ‘Yum Cha’ Festival from Sept 14 at the Gurusaday Road joint.
The Chinese tradition of ‘Yum Cha’ or drinking tea is inextricably linked with dim sum, which consists of a variety of dumplings, steamed dishes and other goodies.
Dim sum is served throughout China which consists of assorted veg dimsum, steamed corn and pinenut dumplings to assorted non veg dimsum platter or juicy lamb dumplings and crab cakes Singapore-style which are prepared in the rich and distinct ways since the ancient days of the Chinese civilization.
The festival had many delicious delicacies which were prepared by Gao Fuliang, master chef from Beijing keeping Chinese tradition in mind.
Designer Agnimitra Paul, who inaugurated the festival, said she loves Chinese dishes a lot and this is the place which she often visits with her friends and family.
The festival will be held for two weeks and will come to an end with the end of this month.
